#277: How a Children’s Illustrated Book Can Motivate You to Garden for the Future with Author Laurel Snyder



In This Episode of the Vegetable Gardening Show

#277: How a Children’s Illustrated Book Can Motivate You to Garden for the Future with Author Laurel Snyder In this episode of the Vegetable Gardening show, Mike chats with Laurel Snyder, author of The Forever Garden. The Forever Garden, an illustrated children's book, tells the story of a young girl who learns from her neighbor why gardening for the future is so important.

The neighbor is planting a number of fruit trees and bushes in her garden even though she is moving out of the house. The little girl doesn't understand why you would plant a garden even though you'll never get a chance to enjoy the benefits of the garden.

In this heart warming story, there are many lessons to be learned, and they are taught through the means of gardening.

This and so much more on this week's episode of The Vegetable Gardening Show!

About this week's guest on the Vegetable Gardening Show, Laurel Snyder

#277: How a Children’s Illustrated Book Can Motivate You to Garden for the Future with Author Laurel Snyder I've been writing pretty devotedly, in one form or fashion, since I was about seven. In the fourth grade, I announced to the world that I planned to become "rich and famous writing books and plays for children!" Then I intended to adopt every stray dog and cat in the city of Baltimore and move them all into an old mansion, not far from where I lived.

Well, I'm not rich by any means, I live in a rather small brick house, and I only have one cat, but I am (blessedly) writing books for kids, and I couldn't be more amazed or delighted.

Most days I spend with my sons (who are tiny) smeared with peanut butter, finger paint, and silly joy. But late at night, I write these books... and I hope you'll read one...

And if you like that book, (or even if you don't) I hope you'll write to me, and say hello!
